ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL – FortifyFL – a new safety app is LIVE. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or www.getfortifyfl.com. The Florida Legislature directed this tool’s development in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.
The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.
St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) is proud to spread the word about this new app and the opportunity it affords users for yet another enhancement to the See Something, Say Something safety and security measures. Students, educators, parents, and community members in the District now have opportunities to anonymously report through the new FortifyFL app, its See Something Say Something predecessor on the St. Lucie Public Schools app, and through Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers.
SLPS will continue to use the School Messenger robo-call system as a means of communicating via phone calls, emails, and text messages to mobile devices. To support timely and accurate reporting, the District encourages parents and guardians to make sure their contact information is up-to-date. If families have had a phone number or address change or are not receiving calls from their child’s school or the District, contact the school’s data specialist to update information or make changes directly by logging into the Skylert parent portal.
